INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis Colts tight end Dallas Clark will be sidelined indefinitely with a wrist injury.

The Indianapolis Star quoted Colts owner Bill Polian on Thursday as saying the type of injury Clark suffered is rare, and that he will see a doctor in Cleveland to assess the damage, because team doctors were unable to come up with a prognosis or timetable for his return.

An eighth-year pro out of Iowa, Clark posted six receptions for 52 yards in Sunday night's 27-24 victory at Washington.

For the season, the 31-year-old veteran has 37 receptions -- a league-best among tight ends -- for 347 yards and three touchdowns while playing in all six of the Colts' games this year.

Jacob Tamme is listed as Clark's backup on the team's depth chart. In 34 games with the Colts since 2008, Tamme has six catches for 47 yards, but none in 2010. The Colts, on Wednesday, also re-signed tight end Gijon Robinson, who had been waived on Sept. 29.

Indianapolis has a bye this Sunday and returns to action on Nov. 1, hosting division-rival Houston.
